Carnival Dream

It's one thing to be fun, but it's another thing to be first. Carnival Dream was at the forefront of a recent wave of amazingly innovative and fun Carnival ships. As the genesis of the Dream class, Carnival Dream set the direction for the ships that followed in her footsteps — first Carnival Magic and then Carnival Breeze.

But back to Carnival Dream: the ship itself is a unique experience with the way-fun RedFrog Rum Bar® and the very cool BlueIguana Tequila Bar™. Get your appetite ready, because you're gonna need it. Carnival Dream features two dual-level dining rooms, a gourmet steakhouse and dedicated sushi spot Bonsai Sushi™. It's also got a full menu of our latest and greatest casual spots for a bite: BlueIguana Cantina™, Pizzeria del Capitano, Guy's Burger Joint™ and Guy's Pig & Anchor Smokehouse™. (That's Guy as in Guy Fieri, by the way — so you know the food's delish.)

Carnival Dream also features the borderline-magical Alchemy Bar® and Ocean Plaza, which combines tasty treats with perhaps even tastier entertainment. Entertainment options are all up and down the ship, and so is soaking-wet fun, from the heart-racing waterslide action at Carnival WaterWorks™ to the soul-soothing Thalassotherapy pool at the Cloud 9 Spa™.

Despite its name, Carnival Dream is definitely a reality. Can't believe it? Pinch yourself... and book your dream cruise today.

Gratuities

It is customary for our guests to extend gratuities to the shipboard staff in appreciation for their hard work and exceptional service. 100% of your gratuities are distributed to the crew who you interact with, such as your stateroom attendants, dining and culinary services staff, as well as others who work behind the scenes to enhance your overall cruise experience. Applying this charge automatically streamlines the recognition process and ensures our crew will share in your generosity.

To help you plan, we have provided the recommended guidelines:

  • Standard Staterooms: $13.99 USD per person, per day *
  • Suite Staterooms: $15.99 USD per person, per day *

*Effective with all cruises departing on or after May 1, 2022, we are making adjustments to our recommended onboard gratuity guidelines, as follows:

  • Standard Staterooms: $14.50 USD per person, per day
  • Suite Staterooms: $16.50 USD per person, per day

You may pay this daily gratuity in two different ways:

Pre-Pay

Gratuities can be added at the time of booking or anytime up to the sail date. Guests who booked directly with Carnival may add their pre-paid gratuities on Carnival.com. If a guest booked with a travel agent, they may contact their travel professional to add pre-paid gratuities to their booking. Prepaid gratuities are reflected in the 'Miscellaneous Charge' field on the confirmation and in the guest's E-Documents.

Sail & Sign®

If guests have not pre-paid their gratuities, the recommended, per person, amount will be posted to their Sail & Sign account on the second to last day of the cruise. Should a guest not be satisfied with the service they receive, they can contact the Guest Services desk while on board. This will allow us to address their concerns in a timely and appropriate fashion. At the discretion of the guest, gratuities may be adjusted after they have been posted on the guest's account, while on board. Gratuities, as posted on a guest's Sail & Sign account, will be considered final after a guest disembarks and no changes will be made after the cruise.

Additional Information

  • Gratuities are assessed on all guests, with the exception of children under the age of 2.
  • Gratuities apply regardless of the dining options selected, such as eating at the casual dining restaurant or open seating dining.
  • For beverage purchases, an 18% service charge will be added to the bill.

Accommodation

On a Carnival cruise, your stateroom is your home base. When the day is done, once you've had your fill of fun, you'll head back to your stateroom and settle in for the night. No matter which kind of room you choose — whether you're thinking of a simple Interior or Ocean View, or going grand with a Balcony or Suite — you'll find yours a well-appointed way to wind down the day. And whether it's day or night, all staterooms have a room steward on duty, an attendant you can call for complimentary room service, and more sweet perks inside.

Decks
Dining

You've got a foodie in you — everyone does! Awaken and delight yours on a Carnival cruise with delicious main dishes, tempting desserts and general yumminess everywhere you look. You can sample great food from all over the world. They've got everything from a specialist steakhouse to 24-hour pizzas and complimentary, round-the-clock room service. And if that isn’t quite enough to satisfy your appetite, you can treat yourself to a multicourse VIP dinner at the Chef’s Table. It’s an eating experience you’ll never forget.
